The embattled Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it has remitted another N7.8 billion to the Federal Government.
The board’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made this known to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Lagos..
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had earlier listed 5 JAMB officials to be arraigned for diverting millions of JAMB procurement funds, the officials includ Philomena Chieshe of Markurdi branch who famously claimed a snake had swallowed the sum of N36M.
Also to be arraigned is her coordinator, Mr. Samuel Umoru, who, according to Chieshe, instructed her to divert the funds.
Others found wanting by the anti graft agency include Tanko Labaran, the clerk in Nasarawa State office of JAMB who could not account for scratch cards worth N23m; and the officer in charge of the Kano office of the board, Yakubu Jakada, for his inability to account for e-facilities cards valued at N20m sold through an agent in one of the banks.
